Mrs. Metro and I love frozen custard.
In NoVA: Frozen Dairy Bar
in Falls Church, Carl's
in Fredericksburg, Dairy Godmother
in Alexandria, and Milwaukee Frozen Custard
, Chantilly and other locations.
Here in the Metroplex there is an excellent family-owned place we enjoy in "downtown" Frisco: http://www.doubledipfrozencustard.com/
and a Culver's
in McKinney. The place that served the best product, Sheridan's
, ( http://www.sheridansfrozencustard.com/
) closed down their two Metroplex locations due to poor planning and huge overhead. They had beautiful, new free-standing 1500 sf buildings that were walk-up only, no seating. As I write this we are "enjoying" our 35th. consecutive 100+ degree day with "parking lot" temps in excess of 120. As good as their product was, there was no way Texans were going to wait in line, then sit in their cars in these climate conditions. Another custard chain, Freddy's
opened across the road from the old Sheridan's, offers indoor seating, and seems to be doing very well.
